Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

All Saints - Sunday 2 November 2014
 

Welcome : All Saints is one of my favourite festivals outside of the big three (Easter, Christmas and Pentecost). There is a sort of glorious profligacy about it, rather like the love of God, which invites us to celebrate with anyone who has ever loved and worshipped God. Like God’s love, it is all-embracing, no one need be left out. Incidentally the same is true of our parish lunch today – all are welcome and included in the invitation.

Week by week we remember those whose anniversary of death is marked, many of them former clergy who have served the Diocese in the past. At our evening service for All Souls we are invited to remember our own beloved dead, to light a candle in their memory and honour, and be thankful for all they offered the world.

Welcome to all the saints who worship today
